Living in Luxury is Not a Pipe Dream



Living in Luxury!

Observing the lifestyles of the rich and famous is a fun pastime for many of us. We dream of how cool it would be to live in the lap of luxury as they do. Fancy cars, premium restaurants, exotic vacations, mansions . what a life they lead! But, for most people, this dream is quickly followed by the thought not for me. And often some sort of condemnation of the rich follows to soothe our wounded ego because of how we’re not able to achieve what they have. 

Several serious fallacies surround the idea that what the rich and famous have cannot be achieved by most other persons. The ideas of scarcity and the moral wrongness of wealth are two of the primary culprits perpetuating the idea that a life of luxury is a pipe dream. The universe is abundantly overflowing with all that is needed for everyone it is individual thinking and feeling that directs the flow. If you believe in lack, lack is what you will get. If you believe in the infinite abundance and love of the universe, that is what you’ll get. The idea of the moral wrongness of having or acquiring great wealth and luxury is absurd in the face of a universe of unending supply. 

Dare to think outside of fear-based, limited supply ideas. You can live a life of luxury. There is no wrong in achieving a comfortable and abundant life. Your life is your responsibility. Your neighbor’s life is your neighbor’s responsibility. This is what makes giving to others and gratitude for what you have so rich. Giving to others is not an obligation, it is a choice motivated by love. Gratitude for what you have and what you receive will grow what you receive. Living in luxury can be yours if you choose it. By allowing yourself to enjoy that luxury without guilt, you are simultaneously allowing others the same right. In other words, you are loving others as you love yourself.


Sleep more to Succeed

The successful people often pride themselves upon their own accomplishments in activities, hobbies and also jobs. They routinely smash through objectives and aims and being leaders in society. But this has a price tag.

With each achievement, a possible and potential failure looks excruciating which generates a disorder in our lifestyles by making us pass up family gatherings and stay over the working hours in order to avert such failure.

For a lot of achievers, hunting the impossible provides them a meaningful purpose. But the latter throws off our lives’ natural balance. In most cases this imbalance gives way to stress and depression which are the leading reasons for illness prevalence in many countries.

Stress causes significant damage in our immune system and hypertension and also causes an increase of weight. So getting more and more sleep is critical to maintain an equilibrium and sustain our overall health. A study in 2005 revealed that individuals that get less than 5 hours of sleep are 2.5 times more likely to be diabetic.

So striving for Perfection sometimes isn’t worth the payoff. Keep in mind that working hard at the appropriate time and getting much rest are quite essential to maintain a lively productive schedule.
